A man who can’t remember. Another who refuses to forget. Somewhere in the middle lies the truth.
It’s five years since his wife disappeared, but wise-cracking, street-smart private-eye Evan Buckley is still reeling. Tormented by demons and consumed by his unrelenting quest for the truth, he loses himself in other people’s problems.
When college buddy Jesse Springer shows up with a wad of explicit photographs that arrived in the mail, Evan is roped into the most bizarre case of blackmail he’s ever encountered—because Jesse swears blind he can’t remember a thing. But can Evan believe him? And if things weren’t bad enough, a psychopathic killer from the past embarks on a crusade of psychological revenge and twisted mind games that threaten to plunge Evan back into his darkest days.
Adrift in a sea of betrayal and lies as the body count climbs, Evan is forced to choose between his gut instinct and the blatant evidence—and the only thing he knows for sure is the wrong choice will be punished with death.
